3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2014 Rerate: Dark copper color with small white head and little lacing- thick and oily. Aroma is resinous, some tropical fruits, pinches the nose like a bit of gasoline. Flavor is very bitter, lots of earthy vegetable, and syrupy candy malt finish. Big hop bomb. Full body, big alcohol presence- pretty intense. Very different from my first experience 6 months ago, and still good, but not what I remember and not what I expected.
11/16/2012: (10)(3)(8)(4)( Amber color with very small diminishing white head. Oily on the glass with no lacing. Aroma is Fantastic- huge huge fruity & floral hops! Amazing fruity hop flavor with an intense grapefruity bitter finish. Best $9 bomber Iíve probably ever had- puts Hoppin Frogís $14 Hop Dam to shame...

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
The nose of this thing is really furiously yummy. hops and a dank bubblegum after a small fizzy white thin head. who would guess otherwise w/a 11.5 % monster. fruity esters and more sitra hops. taste follows the nose. Bold hop assault but very clean. very clean. The excellent carbonation keeps things very tidy. some buttery biscuit bread notes from the yeast. A wonderful triple IPA. easily the best in itís class iíve ever tasted. clean and well carbonated and although you can taste some booze itís well masked or rather this is excellently brewed and thats the best part of this, you can taste the care that went into the mix. very very highly recommended.

Cloudy, copper-hued, juicy sweet grapefruit and hops resin. The palate is sticky, moderate, and the carbonation just right I love this beer! I love this beer. Thank you again, Knee Deep!

Piney, hoppy, and a bit boozy but the flavor is there to match the alcohol. Highly recommended

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from bomber a nice hazy, golden hay hue. Aroma is citrus, orange zest, grapefruit, tropical fruits, pine resin, crystal malt, simcoe and citra hops. The flavour is pleasingly hoppy, creating a sweet orange hard candy sensation along side of resiny pine bitterness, along with a particular field grass hint. Midway the bitterness really ramps up and into the finish it gives way to hints of biscuit malts and caramel malts. An excellent beer with a serious punch.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours deep amber into a snifter. Off-white head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Alcohol, resin and tropical fruit aromas. Hot caramel and mild resin front to back. Lasting alcohol finish.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
"this oneís been winning awards left and right, and i can see why. reminiscent of a Maharaja. aroma of weed, citrus, a touch of pine and a good dose of tropical fruit. flavor the same with an ample dose of bitterness and a nice, fairly clean bittersweet finish. medium bodied and a touch sticky. quite good. i wish i could count on their beer being fresh. This score reflects fresh only. Dated bottles as of 1/13."

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared bomber poured to snifters, showing an orangey gold color, with a decent layer of off white head foam, and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was stinky, dankness, and greenery, with esters & resin that took a distant back seat, and a touch of sweet grain to totally confuse me. Medium+ bodied, with good carbonation, the taste showed a little more fruit as citrus & some tropical hints, a pronounced hop bitterness, some malt sweetness to temper, and a boozy alcohol presence. Roughed up a bit, but Iíll heal.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: Draft at Morrisonís, 9/22/14
Aroma: It has a big juicy hop aroma of grapefruit, resin, pine, and some sweet caramel
Appearance: It pours a dark golden color with a fairly thick head and heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is big as well, similar to the nose, a little sweet, but with a big bitterness
Palate: The body is full, it gets a little sticky, with a smooth, creamy feel, and a dry finish
This is a really nice one. Very hop-forward, with a enough sweetness to keep it from being one-dimensional. This is a nicely made beer.

This is a big beer. Not boozy at all. Dank hop flavor dominated with citrus. Little bit of a malt body sweetness, but the hops take the stage here. Mango and tropical flavors, highly recommended.
